Course content

Managing sustainability is one of the most challenging and rapidly growing areas in both the public and private sectors. With increasing recognition of the impact of a world living beyond its means, the commitment to sustainable development to meet the needs of present generations without jeopardising those of future generations has never been more apparent.

This innovative programme embraces action-based learning, facilitated through a series of work placements and group projects to foster critical thinking and promote the use of initiative for problem solving and decision making. Such experiences also provide the opportunity to contribute positively to the sustainable development agenda whilst enhancing key employability skills in a professional environment.
